Sad to hear. I've seen kids do some really reckless things in that area, e.g., running through traffic, horseplay, etc. The KDKA article says, "However, two boys were just off the sidewalk when one lost his balance." Meaning the two boys were walking in the street! I've seen this often as well. Car dealership employees are notorious for doing these things too! Drives me crazy...
